RMS ‘08s’ at Mid-Nor­folk Rail­way run­ning week­end

Rail (UK) - - Fleet News -

Hav­ing can­celled its diesel gala planned for Septem­ber 28-30, the Mid-Nor­folk Rail­way has con­firmed that it will use two RMS Lo­cotec Class 08s at a trun­cated event.

The gala can­not be staged be­cause of in­fra­struc­ture work re­lated to the £3 mil­lion stor­age deal agreed with Greater Anglia. In­stead, lo­co­mo­tives based at the rail­way will be used for a run­ning week­end.

How­ever, the MNR will use 08754 and 08847, which have been stored at Dere­ham since RMS lost the con­tract to sup­ply GA with Class 08s at Nor­wich Crown Point. The ‘08s’ will run from Dere­ham to Hoe/Wor­thing, op­er­at­ing two round trips each day.

Also in ac­tion at the gala will be 47367, 47596 Alde­burgh Fes­ti­val and the MNR’s two Class 101 sets - 101695 and L836.
